VPAS 652 3-D Projects for the Classroom: Expanded Techniques for Glass Fusing + Slumping: Pattern Bars

College of Critical & Professional Studies

3 credits 45.0 hours
600 level graduate course

Expand your glass techniques by learning how to incorporate ‘pattern bars’ into projects. Participants use advanced methods to create projects with simple bars showing flow dynamics and viscosity; the grafting of precise geometry and placement; and randomization based on color theory and three-dimensional concepts. Various techniques are considered to create a single wall piece. Pieces will be cold-worked and polished. Slumping/draping possibilities are also discussed. Content applicable to K-12 classrooms, particularly to expand knowledge of three-dimensional concepts.
